Growing Up in the Past (Stage 1)
Discover what life was like for working class children growing up in the 1900s at Rouse Hill Estate.
In this interactive virtual excursion, your Stage 1 class will connect live with a museum educator and discuss what life was like for rural children in the early 1900s. Students will investigate the lives of Annie and Ena Sherwood, two young girls who once lived in a small workers cottage on Rouse Hill Estate, and learn about household chores and technology from the past.
Students will also experience a school lesson in the Rouse Hill school house and investigate a range of objects from the time. Finally, they will discuss leisure time for children in the past and how toys have changed and learn how to make their own handmade dolly peg toy.
